In exactly four weeks, Super Nintendo World will open at Universal Studios Hollywood and it looks like any classic gamer’s dream come true.

The park will be located in the same area as the Jurassic Park and Transformers attractions, in the lower lot of Universal. Unlike the games that surround it, however, Super Nintendo World will offer an environment that completely immerses visitors inside a Nintendo game.

Players enter through a green warp tube and on the other side is presented the Mushroom Kingdom, complete with steep pixelated cliffs, grass blocky green and yellow question mark blocks.
